Photon² – Advanced Electric Skateboard Remote Control


Photon² available on backorder – Pre order now to get into batch 7, EST in about 3 weeks.

The ultimate universal electric skateboard/longboard remote controller. We designed it from scratch to be reliable, compact, and ergonomic.

Photon² is the result of a 3 years development, improvement, and feedback from the DIY community. It is now slimmer, more powerful, dedicated soft power latching, longer battery life, and improved reliability over the original Photon.

Works with all VESCs variants like Focbox, Focbox Unity and Vesc 6.

Built in genuine, high quality nrf24 transceiver  for a reliable connectivity.

Long lasting battery life thanks to the optimized hardware and software.

Feature rich, with real time telemetry ( Voltage, amps, temperature, battery percentage, traveled distance, etc), elegant user interface, and countless adjustable riding modes.

Turn signals feature and reactive braking LED effects built-in.

Extended Range

Bellow are the main features of our Advanced Electric Skateboard Remote Control:


Works with all VESCs variants like Focbox, Focbox Unity and Vesc 6. It does also work with regular ESCs through PPM output, but telemetry, cruise control and reverse functions won’t work with regular ESCs.

Remote is easily updatable through micro USB port using the Photon updater software .
